Romanian Air Traffic Services Administration - ROMATSA R.A. - Activity conducted according to international standards

Since 1991, the year of its establishment, the priority objective has been and is the provision of air traffic services for aircraft performing GAT (general air traffic) flights under IFR (instrument flight rules) in the Romanian airspace as well as any other space airline delegated to Romania by international agreements.

ROMATSA ensures:

- organizing and carrying out the management and control of air traffic in order to achieve the obligations set out in Annexes 2 and 11 to ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) of the Chicago Convention;

- organizing and conducting aeronautical information in order to fulfill the obligations set forth in ICAO Annex 15 to the Chicago Convention;

- organizing and carrying out the alarm service for search and rescue the aircraft in difficulty, in order to fulfill the obligations provided in ICAO Annex 12 of the Chicago Convention;

- organizing and conducting aeronautical meteorological information in order to achieve the obligations set forth in ICAO Annex 3 of the Chicago Convention;

- the organization and implementation of aeronautical fixed and mobile telecommunications as well as aeronautical meteorological telecommunications in accordance with the provisions of ICAO Annex 10 to the Chicago Convention;

- organization and implementation of air navigation protection, from a technical point of view, in accordance with the provisions of ICAO Annex 10 of the Chicago Convention;

- organizing and carrying out the endowment according to the provisions of ICAO and of the standards established by EUROCONTROL (European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation) and LCIP (Local Convergence and Implementation Program) ROMANIA;

- ensuring the safety, capacity and operational and economic efficiency of the civil air traffic system, applying the specific regulations in a uniform and fair manner to the air operators and the adjacent air traffic systems, respecting the requirements of environmental protection and national security.

ROMATSA ensures the management and unitary development of aircraft management activities belonging to users or operators, promotes harmonization and integration in the European specialized system (EUROCONTROL), ensures, together with the Ministry of National Defense, the coordinated use of Romanian airspace by civil and military aviation.

Initiative

The establishment of DANUBE FAB is an essential element of the Single European Sky (SES) legislative framework, which creates a system of measures to provide sufficient capacity to serve the increasing number of flights in Europe, reducing delays, improving the safety and efficiency of service costs air navigation.

Vision

Our vision is to offer the safest, most efficient and environmentally friendly air navigation services in South East Europe. "DANUBE FAB strives to make quality air navigation systems functional in order to meet the highest safety standards, infrastructure for all users, while ensuring efficient environmental sustainability.

Objectives

The objective of DANUBE FAB in the airspace under the responsibility of Romania and the Republic of Bulgaria is to improve the capacity, cost efficiency of air navigation services and environmental protection by optimizing NSA delivery and civil-military cooperation in a sustainable development process, at the same time the level of safety.

CCAMS Application for SSR Code Management in Bucuresti FIR, Starting With 15th of October

True to its safety standards and committed to continuously improving its capacity, ROMATSA has become a member of the collaborative, pan-European, Centralised Code Assignment and Management System (CCAMS), starting with 15th of October 2021.

CCAMS aims to overcome the current and future shortages of the Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR) codes used by Air Traffic Control for radar services and provides a unique SSR code to each flight operating in the countries using the service. CCAMS optimises the efficiency of European SSR code management by introducing the dynamic transponder codes allocation, allowing the simultaneous use of the same code in volumes of airspace separated by a buffer zone.

This approach assures the optimal use of SSR codes and reduces the SSR codes shortage and conflicts in the CCAMS region.

Through CCAMS application within București FIR the SSR codes management will be more efficient, increasing safety.

It will determine also a reduction of the airborne SSR code changes, thus decreasing ATC workload and allowing for more flights to be handled.

Being among the pioneers of Mode S implementation in the entire FIR, CCAMS activation places ROMATSA within top 5 air navigation service providers (ANSPs) in Europe that have fully implemented Mode S and CCAMS, compliant with EU Regulations.

 

About CCAMS: CCAMS is a pan-European solution to overcome the shortage of available SSR transponder codes used by air traffic control for radar services. From a functionality point of view, CCAMS consists of a central server located at EUROCONTROL's premises. It provides a unique code for general air traffic operating in the region.

This server:

  • automatically selects and sends a code to all the units along the flight’s route, based on the information available from other Network Manager systems;
  • responds to code requests received from air traffic control (ATC) units;
  • ensures a code conflict-free trajectory for the flight, allowing the code to be retained in the CCAMS area;
  • monitors code use to ensure safe and efficient operations.
